Les moments forts :
Grosse performance également pour Elaine Thompson (JAM) qui s'offre la MPM 2020 en 10'85 sur 100m
On notera encore le superbe chrono, un de plus, du Norvégien Warholm sur 400m haies en 47'07.
Record du meeting, pas très loin du vieux record du monde de Kevin Young, un champion qui a fêté hier ses 54 ans.
Jacob Kiplimo :
"I would like to thank the Diamond League organizers from Golden Gala for bringing me here. I am over the moon. I did not expect such a great time, I thought that I could run around 7.30 Min.
The pacemaker was fantastic. I stayed in Brescia for one week before coming here. Now I will go back home to Uganda to prepare for One Love marathon on October 7th."
Armand Duplantis :
"World record - well, I would not say that I am used to it. It is crazy. It was a really strong competition for me, so long. In the last two jumps I found my rhythm again.
Maybe I will party a bit, just hang out wiht the guys, but trying to stay a little focused because I have one last meeting in Doha in one week.
I will stay in Rome until I fly to Doha. After this last meeting in Doha, I can really party and chill.
How I achieved this result? It has been a long time coming. Coming into the season we did not know if we were able to do any competition at all. This World record is really unexpected and I am very grateful.
World record - finally! It is soo cool. I wanted to get over these 6.15m so badly.
Everybody kept talking about it, it was a big chip on my shoulder and I feel I had to do it to have people stop asking me this question.
When I did it, it was more relief than joy. My mum and dad were not here today. Usually one of them is with me. I am a bit disappointed about that. My dad has never been with me when I jumped a WR."
